Saw this deal mentioned on RedmondPie this afternoon. 

 

https://chytah.com/collections/tech/products/mini-qi-wireless-charger-for-iphone-android

 

USD14.95ea but buy two and get one free.

 

I'm looking for a couple of wireless chargers but should I be staying away from cheapies like these? We'll be charging a couple of iPhone 8's.

This type of charger is available from AliExpress

It is somewhat cheaper....





My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Thanks for sharing....doesn't make it look like such a bargain after all. Does anybody know if they're any good? At that price it probably doesn't matter.

I have bought a couple of these ones before along with other types. They all seem to work fine. Most of them are pretty slow but if they are overnight then it is not an issue.

This would be the slower charger that doesnt support Appleā€™s faster 7.5W charging speed just note.

If you had a cheap phone I'd say get a cheap charger to match

 

But you have a $2000 iPhone so get a $75 RAVPower RP-PC066 and you will always be (very) happy you did

 

You get what you pay for & the sting is soon forgotten through the joy of function

Those ones are a pain to get it lined up right to actually charge with anything useful. I hated how my note 4 would show charging but it was barely getting enough to even break even, move it 10mm and it would be faster.
